Sometimes when you have a long list of filters in a group, it can be awkward to find specific filters.
Whether you're using local filters or global or session filters, the Find Filter dialog (via the Search... button) can help with this.
There are four characteristics of the filters that you can search for, any or all of which can be enabled:
•Find filters of type choose from a list of known datatypes for the target program in the current session
•Find filters using file specify the source code file your target filter is using
•Find filters using function target filters using a selected function name
•Find filters in size range select a lower and upper object size limit by which to search filters
Each of these criteria will only show options relevant to the target program for the current session.
The find filter dialog allows two types of search:
•Exclusive all criteria that are enabled must match the filter for it to be highlighted
Returns a tightly focused set of results.
•Inclusive at least one of the enabled criteria must match
Gives a broader set of results.
•Enable and set the criteria choose inclusive or exclusive search click Find... matching filters are highlighted in the list
Filters are highlighted in the selected object colour, which is set via the Global settings Data Display Colours.
Delays with this dialog appearing? If this dialog takes a few seconds to appear, it's probably because you have a very large dataset, with many object types, files and functions.
